This is purportedly a book about the seamier side of college football...not really so ! Of the larger exposes, Leach @ Texas Tech; OSU and tats and Sandusky/ PSU, all have been covered in better and greater detail, elsewhere. As to the "run of the mill", though by no means acceptable "proclamations", unacceptable athlete benefits, there is no new, nor insightful ground covered. This is essentially "light" college football reading for those into the sport. If you're searching for "inside stuff", this isn't it !
